Yesterday I engaged in some low-key community activism and pimped some tree pits in my local area. Unfortunately I didn’t take a before shot, but trust me, it wasn’t pretty – those tree cages make tempting waste bins!
Most of the plants are hardy alpine groundcovers, although I did include some white cyclamen (because I couldn’t help myself!). A purple verbena was already growing, self-sown from a nearby garden – I only discovered it after clearing out all the layers of discarded drink cans!
Finally, for spring, I planted crocus bulbs which should compliment the apple blossoms nicely. For more pavement pimping ideas, check out http://www.pimpyourpavement.com
